    To My Surprise - To My Surprise (2003) [w/ Brandon Darner of To My Surprise]

    To My Surprise - To My Surprise (2003) [w/ Brandon Darner of To My Surprise]

    GET MEEP TO GO.

    Oh sorry...I didn't mean to startle you but we're talking about the 2003 album by tha band To My Surprise, 20 years after it's release.

    To My Surprise is a fascinating, although be it short lived, project, probably most known for being the side project of Slipknot mastermind and percussionist Shawn Crahan who not only thought it was fun to create with Crayola...but also with renowned producer and former owner of Smokey Mountain Wrestling... RICK RUBIN. That's right, this self titled album was produced by Rick and would be the first time these two would work together, pre-dating even Slipknot's Volume 3 record which Rick also helmed.

    Shawn was not alone however; Early Slipknot member and current successful producer in his own right, Brandon Darner, was the Crahan Collaborator for this opus and would help it sound like nothing else Slipknot or any of their off-shoots ever created and that's who we're talking to on this very special episode.

    Brandon tells us all about his relationship with Shawn, tha idea for the band, making tha album with Rick Rubin, his band tha Envy Corps and even early days with Slipknot playing with THE URGE.

    All this and nothing else on an all new Meep Meep!

    Slipknot - All Hope Is Gone (2008) [w/ producer Dave Fortman of Ugly Kid Joe]

    I. MEEPED. MY. TIME. 

    15 years ago Slipknot released their BEST (???) album and tha final one with tha lineup considered classic: All Hope Is Gone. 

    Producer Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne) of Ugly Kid Joe riffage was brought in to continue tha career of tha Nine and found himself in tha middle of a war while half tha band worked on a separate album simultaneously of what we refer to now as "Look Outside Your Window."

    Tha results? A timeless classic and end of an era and you can hear all about it NOW!!!

    Misfits - Famous Monsters (1999) [w/ Michale Graves of the Misfits]

    Misfits - Famous Monsters (1999) [w/ Michale Graves of the Misfits]

    Famous MEEPSTERS!

    In 1999, Misfits released their Roadrunner debut and 2nd LP with a reborn line-up entitled FAMOUS MONSTERS. Infamous Monster himself Michale Graves himself tells us about how approaching this album differed from "American Psycho", his time in World Championship Wrestling, working with horror icon George A. Romero, hanging with Dark Carnival royalty Insane Clown Posse, and collaborating with Matt Heafy of Trivium for tha legendary ROADRUNNER UNITED!

    No need to cut off your arms or your legs, you can still love Meep anyway

MEEEPSTERS!

Any person who purchased anything Roadrunner put out needs to listen to this podcast.
Remember when you bought an album JUST BECAUSE the band was on Roadrunner?
Yes, I do and I did.
Not just a “Take a look back, my opinion and blah blah blah..”
Ryan knows what he is talking about, like little details he brings up that 99.99999999% of people didn’t know. Me included.
Long live the Meepsters!!!
